Rising air temperatures, shrinking ice sheets, warmer oceans – the threat of global warming continues to loom, pushing society to find alternative energy solutions that minimize harmful emissions. Along the way, we’ve harnessed biodiesel, which has been proven to have a significantly lower carbon footprint than its petroleum-based counterparts. Keep reading, and we’ll tell you how biodiesel can help mitigate the effects of global warming.
As the push for a greener society continues, biodiesel has garnered quite the reputation as a low carbon alternative to petroleum diesel. However, while you probably know that it is derived from vegetable oils, you may not know how biodiesel is produced. Here, we’ll guide you through the biodiesel refinement process – SeQuential style.
Crafted from plant-based materials and proven to deliver performance that rivals that of typical diesel, it’s no surprise that biodiesel has risen to the top of the list of petroleum alternatives. Still skeptical? Read on to discover five reasons why you should switch to biodiesel today.
SeQuential’s Finished Products manager, Kevin Kuper, recently presented as part of the Western Washington Clean Cities webinar series: Clean Fuels 101- Biomass Fuels. The webinar session focused on biodiesel, renewable diesel and ethanol — the three main alternative fuels made from biomass feedstocks like plants, animal tallow, used cooking oil, wood chips and other cellulosic fibers.
